Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to land Paul Pogba and believes that he can help the French star rediscover his best form, a report states.
He moved back to Old Trafford from Juventus four years ago for a then-world-record £89 million sum.
However, the player has failed to find and maintain the explosive form he showed in Italy.
Two foot injuries last campaign set his progress back and he also contracted coronavirus in the summer.
As such, all that culminated in the star admitting that he’s facing one of the most difficult periods in his professional career.
Transfer speculation has nonetheless continued to surface amid Pogba’s struggles. Indeed, his entourage, Mino Raiola, has been largely responsible for creating such talk.
But while reports have considered Real Madrid and Juventus as possible next destinations for Paul, the Daily Star Sunday claims that new PSG chief Pochettino also wants the midfielder.
The newspaper reports, in fact, that Mauricio has made Pogba his number one target for next summer’s transfer window.
He believes that the Red Devils man is the ‘perfect’ player to build his team around and he feels ‘convinced’ about Paul’s ability to pull off a swoop.
United are allegedly aiding Pochettino’s stance, though. The club are ready to cash in on Pogba, who supposedly feels ‘desperate’ to find a fresh challenge.
In addition, clubs interested in a transfer would have to pay around £75 million for the former Bianconeri man, a lower figure than the English giants’ original asking price.
